Howdy. I’m Ashleigh. I’m glad you found me and My Meow. Here is where you can get to know me, fast. I’ve always had a thing with words. Writing in diaries, filling up empty notebooks and holding onto them as I used to feel scared to share my voice with the world. I started to write out loud in 2014 to work through my decision to have a baby. Or not to have a baby as it turned out to be. I spent many months contemplating a childfree life. Eventually, after whole lot of soul searching, I made peace with my decision. Since that time, I continued to blog about daily life, travel and things that move my heart, and have steadily grown my freelance writing business as well as launching Hotels With Cats, a travel directory for cat people.
I’m married to a man I call The Ginger Hunk. We have that soul lifting, butterflies in your tummy kind of love. Our wrong way around love story can be read about here. He is my life and the other half of my soul. We are cat slaves to two cats, Sasha and Piper, both rescues with quirky personalities.
We love travelling, adventures and meeting new people, but equally love life in our little pad in Sydney. In 2015 I learned to freedive which was the most amazing experience of my life and I spent six weeks in Bali earlier this year completing my master course. The Ginger Hunk is a photographer, which makes capturing our adventures easy when I can convince him to take photos of something other than cats on our travels! I dab in and out of health kicks but after a decadent 2017 I am hoping to kick some serious fitness, financial and career goals in 2018, with some travel thrown in of course!
My Meow is where you will find a dose of life, travel tips, things I learn along the way, and of course, the odd cat story.
